thwarted over the last ten years under president bush and under president obama where our intelligence community has saved lives and kept people out of harm's way. there's been a few misses like boston or benghazi where things we should have known or should have done, we made huge mistakes in benghazi when it came to protecting our ambassador and the consulate. but in the grand scheme of things with regard to the things we've been able to do in the intelligence world in stopping threats, it's been very successful. >> so you brought up benghazi. do you think that's why we're so proactive in getting this resolves right now? they could afear to be soft targets to al qaeda operatives. >> i hope it's part of the reason. like i said before, this threat is much more specific than anything we had going into benghazi. benghazi, we should have known because it was the anniversary of 9/11 and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that an embassy in benghazi is the day that the bad guys like to take a pop shot at us. that was a no-brainer and we left our ambassador vulnerable in my opinion. t
president sali was overthrown with the support of the obama administration and saudi arabia, he wasn't removed and a stable new government put in place. yemen is a very fractured country. you have a tribe in the north, shia enclave in effect in a largely sunni area. you have the factions that existed at the time the president was overthrown. they're still competing with one another. and you have al qaeda. as you just noted, they still maintain a capacity to strike, at least against yemeni targets. probably are still growing in strength within the country. you have yemen following the path of somalia, following what looks to be the path of libya, what may be the path of syria, of nation states in the middle east and north africa simply coming apart. having national governments in name only. governments whose writ does not run beyond their capital city. that's a very bad piece of news, very bad development for the united states. because it means the terrorists, whether al qaeda or others, can shelter in these states of near anarchy. >> you just said that al qaeda there is growing. but

. james? >> chris, good morning. president obama and his national security team approached this day, the president's 52nd birthday, not in a state of celebration, but rather one of apprehension. the u.s. embassy compound in cairo, egypt, is one of nearly two dozen u.s. installations that would normally have been open today, about is now closed. at the u.s. embassy in yemen, heightened security was ready discernible. a senior lawmaker told fox news that terrorist chatter picked up by u.s. signals intelligence exceeds anything witnessed in more than a decade. lisa monaco, the president's counterterrorism advisor, and susan rice, now the president's national security advisor, who led the interagency advice. rice chaired a principals committee meeting yesterday that included the secretaries of state and defense and directors of fbi, cia and nsa. still another participant in that session says it appears plotted at western, not specifically u.s. influence. >> we're taking it seriously, which i think you'd expect us to do. yeah, there's a significant threat stream, and we're reacting. >> t
president obama has repeatedly denounced leaks, there was an extraordinary breach leaked today, putting the administration in a flattering light. u.s. officials told "the new york times" the white house decided to close the embassies after intercepting electronic communications between top al qaeda leaders. one u.s. official boasting this was significant, it was the big guys talking and talking about very specific timing for an attack or attacks. the leak about intercepting electronic communications is a bit of unfortunate timing for the administration, just as it has been taking heat over whether the nsa surveillance programs go too far, although the new information showing such close coordination between al qaeda's core leadership in pakistan and top affiliate in the arabian peninsula raises new questions about whether the terror group is really on the run. >> we have brought continually pressure to bear on both al qaeda core and al qaeda's affiliates, and we have for a number of years made clear our intention in terms of the threat presented by al qaeda has shifted in focus to some o

on "fox news sunday" the senator blaming president obama's foreign policy. >> the only american policy that i can think of that president obama is practicing is that, one, he's not bush. second, that the united states is withdrawing. we are withdrawing. and when you do that and when you say that, then things get a lot worse than they are. >> live with the news tonight in washington, steve, the embassy in yemen remains closed. why is that significant? >> well, we don't know if there's an actual threat there or what kind of a threat. we do know yemen's a stronghold of the al qaeda in the arabian peninsula. president obama says that branch of al qaeda continues to pose a serious threat to americans. but the president's critics say he's been understating the overall terrorist threat. >> you can't say on the one hand you have destroyed, quote, core al qaeda. by the way, that is semantic gymnastics which is remarkable. you can't say that and at the same time have to close embassies and consulates all over the middle east. look, al qaeda's on the rise. they have been on the rise. they have co

. >> secretary k least made plain i thought today that he and president obama believed, they are certainly highly competent that chemical weapons were used by the assad are a jeevment the only question is can they persuade capitol hill and whether or not it's wise to do anything. >> or will they wait for a chance even to persuade capitol hill? capitol hill doesn't come back here until monday. >> indeed, it doesn't. of course we know what the brits think and that the toy has said no and the brits say. no the u.n. says they are going to wait. it's interesting because secretary kerry said today that the u.n. isn't even -- they are just determining whether there were chemical weapons used not who used them which is, of course, a significant issue. anyway, james, thank you. >> thank you. >> greta: today's senator mike lee tweeting if the president cannot convince congress that the syrian crisis threatens our national security military intervention should be off the table. senator lee joins us. nice to see you, sir. >> thank you very much, greta. >> what does the president have to do to convince you, s
are demanding that president obama get congressional is approval. good evening congresswoman. >> good evening, greta. i understand you also want congressional approval. why? >> the constitution requires it. and the war powers act requires that congress vote before a military attack. and clearly we have not been attacked. but the law requires it. but more than that, our system of government requires it. the american people right now are not for this. and if the president thinks it's the right thing for our country to do, he needs to make his case to the congress and in doing so, make his case to the american people. it would be very unwise to move forward without that support. >> is doing a limited attack such as launching cruise missiles, and the president hasn't made a decision. it may be what we all assume he's going to do, even for a short period of time, is that an act of war? >> let me ask you this, greta, if somebody dumped cruise missiles on washington, d.c. only for a day, would we consider that not an act of war? >> i would. i certainly would. i must confess, because the whole issue,
of campaign-style features that president obama has been making across the country. selling his economic plan and calling republicans in congress the obstacles to true progress. >> now, unfortunately for the last year or so, we've had an endless parade of distractions and political posturing and phony scandals that shift focus away from what do we need to do to shore up middle class families and create ladders of opportunity for folks to get in the middle class? and as washington heads towards another budget debate, the stakes could not be higher. and that's why i'm traveling around, laying out my ideas for how we have to build the cornerstone of what it means to be middle class. a good job with good wages, a home to call your own, a good education, affordable health care that's there for you when you get sick. a secure retirement even if you're not rich. >> well, a new fox news poll finds the president's message may be falling on deaf ears. an overwhelming majority of voters 71% believe the new speeches are full of old ideas. we have team fox coverage. doug mcelway has more on the jobless nu
or not to defund obama care even if it means shutting down significant portions of the government, good or bad idea? >> in general it is a good idea. our party is united as far as getting rid of obama care. more americans are losing health care and costs are going up and the problems continue with the implementation of obama care. what we have a ro best difference is the tactic of how to make that happen. some believe we can defund it in the continuing resolution process and some people believe you can't do that because of the mandatory spending. if we can get resolutions that it can be done, most republicans agree to defund. it but there is a healthy debate on what is the most effective way to do. it everyone wants to get to the same place, it is just how to get there. >> the te party people drew a line in the sand and said if they don't vote to defund or tied to the debt ceiling or budget itself then they are rhinos; is that fair? >> you will see it in the grassroots movement. generally they want to see a republican stand on it. if they are not going to stand to defund it when the time coming to

whether or not to defund obama care, even if it means shutting down significant portions of the government. good idea, bad idea? >> i think in general it's a good idea. our party is united as far as getting rid of obama care. we recognize the fact that more americans are losing their health care, costs are going up. the problems continue with the imation of obama. what i think we have a robust difference on is the tactic on how to make that happen. some people believe that we can defund it through the continuing resolution process. some people believe that you're not able to do that because of the way the funding is structured in terms of mandatory spending. i think if we can get resolution that it can be done i think most republicans agree that we should defund it. but there's a healthy debate as to what is the most effective way to do it. and that's where the breakdown occurs. everyone wants to get to the same place. it's just how to get there. >> dana, a lot of the tea party people have sort of drawn a line in the sand and said if they don't vote to defund and even tie it to whether it'

the irs cooperated or not, we don't know because we can't get a true hearing on the issue. obama said that his presidency would be of transparency. so -- americans can know what the government is doing but there is no accountability or transparency. because the people who deal -- are accused of what they are doing, no one has been fired. >> you know the bottom line here, american people just say, you know, what's going on with the irs? there's already a distrust of the irs anyway because of the huge bureaucracy that actually taps into your financial stability or your financial accounts. no one likes to pay taxes. now we are still hearing a distrust among american taxpayers. how do you get beyond this? >> angela and i would agree on this. the way i move it forward is ask -- for every irs tax exempt that has been not allowed an application or anyone that was checked for further information to public. we can all look at the list, we can all see what they allowed and -- to go lou which is public actually because you can look it up, all those -- financial centers. >> now that you said this
. >> reporter: sure. gregg: well, a brand new fox poll just in as president obama uses the bully pulpit to pivot back to the economy and pound republicans. but according to the just-released poll, voters are knot terribly impressed. most of them think the president isn't offering any new economic ideas, and he'd help the country more by staying in washington, rolling up his sleeves and actually working with republicans. the new poll, there it is, finds 71% of voters say the president's recent economic speeches are full of the same old things that he's been talking about for the last few years, that's more than triple the number who think he's putting forward new ideas to boost the economy. angela mcglowan is a fox news political analyst. want to talk to you about these. do you think that number we just showed on the screen is a reflection of unemployment that is still incredibly high and economic growth that "the washington post" called horrible? >> it is a reflection. i think you're going to see this during the midterm elections. if you remember in 2010, you had the tea partiers and people comi
and salty nut bars by nature valley. nature at its most delicious. jamie: welcome back. president obama's repeating what seems to be a white house talking point saying the core of al qaeda has been decimated. that's a claim often repeated recently by the president and other members of the administration. >> today the core of al qaeda in afghanistan and pakistan is on the path to defeat. their remaining operatives spend more time thinking about their own safety than plotting against us. >> we point to the successes and the president pointed to the successes including the decimation of the core of al qaeda in afghanistan and pakistan. jamie: john bolton, former u.s. ambassador to the united nations. you know him well, a fox news contributor and great to have you here in studio, ambassador, thank you for coming in. do you share the opinion that not only has al qaeda not been decimated, but they have actually morphed and metastasized? >> they have taken some hits, there is no doubt about it since the original 9/11 but i can seewe can see from the terror alert we're experiencing right now th
that killed nearly 3,000 americans in new york, northern virginia and pennsylvania. president obama is celebrating his 52nd birthday at camp david. he played golf before he left and the white house said before departing this morning the president was updated on the potential threat occurring in or emanating from the arabian peninsula by assistant to the president for homeland security and counter-terrorism lisa monaco. we expect him to return to the white house later today. >> not just the united states, germany, france, united kingdom closing their embassy. >> yes. it's described as a specific threat. yet our response all the way from bangladesh to algeria, halfway around the globe practically, it's a kbenl response to what is characterized -- >> what do you think the terrorists are saying, look, we got it done. >> we won. that's what's so upsetting, even if there's no destruction or blood shed, which of course everyone around the world is hoping there isn't, the jihadists are loving this because it's changing the way we're living our lives and doing business, because sunday is a d
obama's birthday. he's celebrating his 52nd years of living here on earth. so why -- now we take a moment to say happy birthday, mr. obama. look, it's been a tough summer for the president. approval numbers are low. the economy is sluggish. he continues to have a very tough time finding agreements with those republicans you just talked about on a plan to deal or at least get some sort of deal on federal spending and the national debt. what can he do? >> i think he can -- my expectation is that he'll stand pat and hope that the republicans overplay their hand. i think he is counting on any threat of a government shutdown being blamed more on the republicans than on him. you will see the republicans talk emphatically about any government shutdown would be the president's fault. you'll hear conservatives, heritage action, for example, heritage foundation is coming out hard with this notion that the government should shut down unless the president is willing to defund obama care. and that unless he agrees to that, any government shutdown would be the president's fault. the republican
